OUT OF THE BLUE

Directed by Jonathan Bregel, Steve Hoover

USA, 2020

8 min

A 78-year-old man covered his body with one beautiful tattoo. The retired Principal City Planner for Baltimore talks about trees, consciousness, letting go of life and his genitals.

Out of the Blue really is the perfect title for this film, as it catches you off guard with the mention of “five testicles” (you’ll get it when you see it!). Beautifully shot and oddly introspective, the blue man will have you questioning the meaning of life in the best ways. Jim shows us that a human is an “outrageous phenomenon” and helps us feel special in our own unique ways.
